    Belt testing - Taekwondo

    Well, I had my first belt test last night, no more white belt for me. The Wife also progressed up one. My kids that tested yesterday also went up in belt level too. The 4 year old didn't test, so she is still a "Kangaroo Kicker".

    No video this time, my Son didn't catch mine and the Wife told me no more posting her on YouTube

    My ready stance before starting my forms and the Wife and I after all is said and done.

    I was involved with Tae Kwon Do for 8 years before I started wrestling, great activity!

    Conrats. My kids were awarded their yellow belts last night too. I just started Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and after a while I'll be picking up a striking art.

    Nice accomplishment. I studied Tae Kwon Do for a few years. Just talked to the GF last night about taking a Krav Maga or Jujisu class together, she was receptive. Your lucky your wife goes with you ;)

    Congrats - my daughter got her "Blue Belt" a month or so ago - she's wanting me to start.

    I am looking to pick up Krav Maga, the TKD will get me in the shape I would want to be in before I start.

    The Wife is the main reason I go, accountability. I can make an excuse for anything, but with her there and my 4 kids taking class from them in the mornings it is much easier for me to not have an excuse.

    I did this same training with my daughter. It really made a strong bond between us. We competed around the state together and completed in 2 World Championships together. Makes for some great memories while you have your kids at home.

    My youngest son just got his yellow belt too, he also looks like me. I see another YouTube video coming, with "mini me"

    Congratulations on you discipline and motivation! My 16 year old is a 3rd degree Black Belt in TKD, my 11 year old is a 1st degree Black Belt and will hopefully test for his 2nd degree in February. They can hold their own in any kind of fisticuffs but are well trained in the use of many firearms. Current favorites are the H&K USP 40 for the 16 year old and M1 Carbine for the 11 year old. Keep kicking!

    I agree it is a great family activity. My 13 yr old is 2nd deg. black belt in Tang Soo Do, I will be testing for my 1st degree in December and the wife is currently a yellow belt.
    With all of the classes we take we spend more time at the school than at home.

    Congratulations! I used to take TKD in my younger days, but I kept getting injured before advancing, so all that I ever earned is my "Black and Blue" belt! Now, I have severe arthritis and spinal stenosis, and have chronic pain, so my martial art of choice is "gun foo"

    My Dad caught me on video. I have actually learned a lot by watching it, I need to do some more work on my stances and making a tight fist.
